Expert Solution

Answer to Problem 35E

The equation is k=7000

Explanation of Solution

Given:

  L varies inversely propostional to d2

Concept used:

If the quantities x and y are related by an equation

  y=kx

For some constant k0

That is y varies inversely as x or y is inversely proportional to x

The constant k is called constant proportionality

Calculation:

If the quantities L and d are related by an equation

  Lα1d2

  Lα1d2L=kd270=k(10)2k=100×70k=7000

For some constant k0

That is v varies inversely z or v is inversely proportional to z

The constant k is called constant proportionality

The loudness of sound is inversely proportional to the square of the distance d from the sources of the sound
